A Pacific political candidate has set his sights on the young Pacific vote ahead of the New Zealand election.

After losing the Auckland Mayoral race, former Labour councillor Fa'anana Efeso Collins has swapped sides and is now a Green Party candidate.

Standing for the Panmure-Otahuhu electorate which has been a safe seat for Labour, Fa'anana hopes his move to the Green Party would win the Pasifika voters. 

RNZ Pacific's Eleisha Foon spoke with Fa'anana Efeso Collins.
